As a follow-up to K-roc's picture post, I just wanted to add another picture of the tiny book I hand bound for her. It has 80 pages and is approximately 1" x 1". It has some green felt on the back of the spine for extra spiffiness.


I had no idea you hand bound that tiny book! I love it, but now I LOVE it! You shoulda told me so I could give you the credit you deserve you crazy gal!

When you told me you loved tiny things (and the whole you making tiny things), I knew I had to make a tiny book for you. I'm still really new at book binding being my second book so I decided that 1" was tiny enough for me at the moment. I totally envy those that post the earring sized books.

the binding looks great! I am by no means an expert, but I know how hard that can be, even after doing tons of books. Is that a "sewing on tapes" style binding?

Oh awesome stuff everyone. I wisted the butter beer necklace, that is insanely cool. I really liked those yarn ball magnets and the gold fish too.

I'm not sure what kind it is. I initially used a tutorial that was put up here, and have found many other similar binding tutorials through google. Today I found it again under 'moleskin book' or something to that effect.

When I opened up my package, I got 2 yarn balls  Shocked and a few skeins of Red Heart Super Saver. Unfortunately I only have a pic of 1 ball:



It's square! Inside the ball:


A pattern book for making a tartan rug.


A Fun Fur rug Grin I LOVE IT! Whenever I walk over it, I pause and wiggle my toes in it Tongue Kudos for you, macreede for working with Fun Fur!


Inside:
Assorted yarn bobbins
2 special needles to weave in chains for the tartan rug
cell phone cozy
Washcloth with fancy stitch pattern
Tootsie Rolls
Washing ball thing (I forget the technical name)

Everything is great. Thanks macreede!
